In Memoriam - Don Larson

Tuesday afternoon the Multnomah County River Patrol recovered and identified Don Larson from the Columbia River. Details of his death are not available at this time.

I have a lasting memory of Don as the best sturgeon fisherman I ever met. He loved the continuous action afforded by keeper sized fish. I am at a loss to express my sorrow adequately. I hope Don is in a place as beautiful and which brings him the joy he found fishing for stugeon in the Columbia River gorge.

Farewell, Don. Thank you for the years of fishing together.

I only met Don this past April. I was laid off about that time and I had the pleasure of fishing with Don quite often. Don, Pete, and I sometimes got out 2 or 3 days a week. We didn't catch as many as we would have liked, but we had some good times.

Don taught me quite a bit about strugeon fishing. He even shared his secret home brewed sturgeon scent recipe with me. I don't think I will ever be able to fish for sturgeon without thinking of Don.

Goodbye Don. Thanks for the memories. I will miss you.
